Great place, great food, great service and abundant amount of food with reasonable price.

Sure, the portions are huge, but who can really eat over a pound of meat slapped between two tiny pieces of Wonder Bread? And you're paying for the portions all right - All sandwi...

Horrible food, overpriced dish, rude staff 10/31/2006

Roxy was a nightmare-ish restaurant experience. I didn't have a good first impression upon walking in --- the seats, tables, ambiance were all too commonplace with no style at all, but what really got under my skin was the horrible food and staff. The brisket sandwich was tastless, and for a restaurant that serves Greek Salad it didn't even bother to stock Greek dressing! Not even Mediterranean dressing! The croissants were so dry and bland. To top that off was our waitress. She was smile-less with a snappy attitude, she put everything down with a loud sound, and shuffled us the bill without us asking for it. We originally planned to eat and relax from 4pm to around 6:30pm, but the waitress was obviously trying to sabotage that plan by rushing us to leave. We had the guts to stay put after finishing the food, and just sat and drank and talked, ignoring her hovering around. Thank goodness that waitress evaporated later and our subsequent waiter was ok. Our seat was close to the door on the first floor, so I got to notice what must be the smallest, dirtiest kitchen in the whole city, overheard rude chastisizing by a manager to a server, and endured bad music. There was so much drama that made me wonder whether I was in a Broadway show or what. Of course the dish was overpriced, Roxy obviously does not care about you coming back, they just try to squeeze as much money as they can on your first and only visit there. more

Sharing Charge?! 10/1/2005

As soon as I saw the overwhelming portions of food around me I knew that I would be better off sharing a plate with my mom. Wait... theres a sharing charge!! I ate a mesclun salad with oil and balsamic vinager. The prices took away my hunger. The salad looked like some one emptied an entire bag of one of those pre packaged salads on a plate. It was really good and I was not able to finish it so I asked for a box to take it with me and I shared it with my mom in our hotel room. Haha!! My mom had a cheesecake with fresh strawberries which was good, but it didnt have many strawberies, just a layer of thinly sliced strawberries with jam in between the slivers. more

Ridiculous Food at Ridiculous Pri 9/1/2004

I don't get this place - they charge you 16$ for a sandwhich that you can't eat. I guess that is their gimmick, but in my opinion it is stupid. The sandwiches are so large that you it is just a waste, and the price is astronomical even for Times Square. Oh yeah, and the quality is nothing special either. My Turkey was average, and my bread was stale. more

Great Place to Start 11/6/2003

My wife and I always eat our first meal here when visiting NYC ... it's right across the street from the TKTS booth, so we might as well. Good food and large portions. There's a fee to split a sandwich, but if you get a side order (like fries), they waive it. And believe me, two can easily share a sandwich. Wonderful baked goods, also. And the service is friendly and above average. Pros: Location, service, portions Cons: a little crowded more

Overpriced! 9/24/2003

Sure, the portions are huge, but who can really eat over a pound of meat slapped between two tiny pieces of Wonder Bread? And you're paying for the portions all right - All sandwiches are around $15 to $20. The potato pancakes are good (just like mom used to make), and the food is fresh, but you're better off going somewhere else for the price. This is also a tiny place, so don't expect to be able to dine with a large group. Pros: Large Portions Cons: Overpriced, Overpriced, Overpriced more

Lots o' Food 4/30/2003

I sure couldnt eat all tey gave me. It wasn't cheap, but what is in NYC? Decent service, kind of a fun atmosphere. more

Great Cheesecake!! 4/24/2003

I must admit, the customer service leaves a lot to be desired but, the cheesecake is out of this world!! Smooth as silk! I'm originally from NYC, moved down here to Atlanta, GA and I haven't eaten better cheesecake. When I went to visit NYC, I bought a whole strawberry cheesecake and brought it home. My boyfriend and I ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. LOL!! Pros: Portions, Desserts Cons: Customer Service, snug seating more

PRICES TOO HIGH 2/15/2003

I ORDERED THE PASTRAMI ON RYE. IT WAS GOOD, BUT WHO CAN EAT THAT MUCH, EXPECIALLY WHEN VISITING AND STAYING IN A HOTEL. I WOULD GLADLY HAVE HAD 1/2 OF THE SERVING AND PAID LESS. DAUGHTER ORDERED THE SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS. THE NOODLES WERE QUITE NAKED; SHE ASKED FOR MORE SAUCE AND WAS ACCOMMODATED. THE THREE LARGE MEATBALLS WERE TASTY. UNFORTUNATELY, WE WASTED 3/4 OF OUR MEAL. IT WAS OUR FAULT, HAD WE BEEN STAYING IN A HOTEL WITH A FRIDGE, WE COULD HAVE TAKEN IT 'TO GO'. I WOULDN'T GO AGAIN, UNLESS I SPLIT AN ORDER. $45 COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER SPENT. Pros: FRIENDLY STAFF, PORTIONS TO BE SPLIT Cons: PRICEY, TOO MUCH FOR 1 more

Kids Not Welcome 2/10/2003

Stopped in on a busy Saturday night. Portions are large, but you pay for them. They were not real excited to deal with kids. Too bad, because there were a lot of families out that night. Pros: large portions Cons: sketchy service more

Not good 2/10/2003

Too much food but not necessarily good. They charge you for sharing the humangous plates that not a normal person can eat by itself. The only thing nice about it was the funny caricatures on the wall and the cheesecake. more

great!!!!!! 7/29/2002

Great place, great food, great service and abundant amount of food with reasonable price. more

Sucks is too kind 7/10/2002

Went here for breakfast recently and had what may have been the worst meal of my life. Don't go anywhere near this hole! Cons: terrible food, bad service more

Sucks! 5/27/2002

You cannot get anything for under $15. A can of warm soda costs $2.25. The sandwiches are so large that one cannot eat them alone, yet the sharing charge is $3.00, which brings up the cost of any sandwich to at least $20, and it's just not worth it. more
